If you were a database worker in a large firm (Say EE&G or Wackenhut), and let's say that you were able to extract personal information about the CEO
or any other employees. if they use software to track this, such as payroll and HR software, could this be used for ill-gotten gain?
Is there a great risk and aren't there employees in charge of protecting this type of intrusion? It is reasonable that if a breach such as this
occured, could you not sell a list of employees to someone who may wish to cause them harm or have personal information for kidnappings of family and
such? I know that many movies and books have been written about 'lists' that are in the open.
Would there be "National Security" concerns if the names of all of their employees in the states and overseas were released on a Internet site? If
you were a 'security op' or 'analyst' working for Haliburton or Wackenhut, would you want the peole you were fighting to know your personal
A situation occured recently and it raised alot of questions for me. Thanks.
PS This has nothing to do with hacking.....
